CURRENT AFFAIRS AND HISTORICAL CONNECTIONS My view of studying history is that it is important for future generations to know where their ancestors have been and what they have accomplished in order to make future changes and developments in a society. I feel that without studying American history most industries would not be able to grow to meet the demands of modern day needs. Take for instance the computer industry and it’s progression in the last 40 years. My laptop that I’m writing this paper with has as much power, if not more than the computers used to put a man on the moon. That would not be possible if manufacturers did not look at ways to improve what they already have developed, which means they have to look back at what they have created in the past. Among other important reasons for studying American History would be subjects such as labor laws and social security. We as a society want to live better lives and improve the quality of our lives and so by looking at the past we can make changes in the future to benefit our future generations. In my view without studying history there would be no progressive future. I think many people have a negative view on studying history because they can’t seem to find a connection to how history relates or affects their lives. I believe that anyone can find something interesting to study in history. It’s just a matter of finding a way for them to connect with a subject on a personal or professional level. Maybe someone does not like American history but they might enjoy studying their own family history. Through that they might find that an ancestor had an important impact on American history. Another way a person might find studying history relevant in their life is through work. If the person is passionate about the work they do, studying the history of that profession in order to perform better in the future…...

Assignment 2 Current and Media Affairs

...revenue generators, the story appears pretty much the same; people with large amounts of money can manipulate anything that they want, or don't want the public to see. Rupert Murdoch's media giant, News Corporation brings in $32.2 billion per year, which mainly comes from: Advertisers, who give TV channels and the papers money to advertise products Revenue from public purchasing the papers, watching television and going on the internet The government, who charge a fee for a TV licence which allows non-commercial (no adverts) television to be constantly broadcasted. It can be rather difficult to properly evaluate the independence that media companies have from owners. This is because different media outlets have developed unique characteristics that make them all different from one another. Newspapers like The Sun will write intentionally controversial things, such as when they accused Liverpool fans of urinating on and looting dead bodies after the Hillsborough disaster. Higher-class papers like The Guardian and The Independent will focus more on writing about the factual side of stories and highlight the main points, not just the ones that will sell. Every paper has a particular style and stance. Style- A newspapers style is basically what I talked about in the last paragraph. It is the audience that the paper's stories are aimed at (I.e lower class, upper class). Stance- is the political views that a newspaper has, I.e left wing or right wing. Owners can......

...Term Paper for Communication We communicate in many different mediums. Modern communication is predominantly shaped by the advancement in technology. The human race has come a long way from “tribal epoch” to the “electronic epoch”. (Wood 305-308) However, the electronic approach to communication has grown exponentially during the last decade. Most communication mediums we use today such as cellular phones, the Internet and television are all associated with advancement in technology. In many ways the electronic mediums are similar to the natural form of communication, while they are different on other levels. Modern mobile cellular phones deliver messages similar to the traditional phones, but this new medium has changed the nature of communication. The modern structure of wireless global communication was predicted in 1945, with the “geostationary” radio communication “satellite”, long before the cell phone was ever invented. (Clarke 305-308)The geostationary satellites are positioned on a specific Even today cellular phones use radio technology similar to FM or AM radios. The invention of the traditional landline telephone has created an “interpersonal medium” (Burkell 312-323) with which one person can communicate personal messages to another person verbally. Today because modern cellular phones have revolutionized the device, now it can do much more than just two way communication between two individuals.
